Solid Fas'

Solid Fas'

Solid fas', I come to tell you
   HURRAH, MY ROLLING RIVER
"Solid fas'," our captain cry out
   WE ARE BOUND AWAY FROM THIS WORLD OF MISERY

Nobody knows about our toilin'
Only God Almighty knows about our danger

"Whale ahead," my little gunman cry out
"Solid fas'," my little captain answer

And on our way, she roll and shiver
Down in our way, she spout dirty water

"Make her so bold," my strokeman cry out
"Haul and gi' me," my centerman cry out

Nobody knows about our hardship
Our shipowner, she don't know our hardship

Misery into the ocean
Misery in the deep wide ocean

Recorded by the Boarding Party
(rowing shanty from the Caribbean island of St. Vincent,
         derived from "Shenandoah")
